….As 3,500 Successful Candidates Begin Screening Exercise Nationwide

The Nigeria Customs Service says it is set to release the names of successful candidates for final screening in the ongoing recruitment exercise.

According to a statement signed by Public Relations Officer, DC, Joseph Attah and made available to journalists the outbreak of corona virus (covid-19) early 2020 made the NCS recruitment exercise to be suspended after the aptitude test thereby causing anxiety for candidates and their families.

He said, “recruitment into Nigeria Customs Service is and will remain strictly based on merit and principle of Federal Character, with every Local Government of the federation appropriately represented. Since the Service does not know when the ravaging covid-19 will end, Management has decided to forge ahead with the exercise while strictly adhering to the protocols”.

“Already a total of 3,500 successful candidates have been shortlisted and will be published in three (3) national dailies ie Sun, Daily Trust and Nation newspapers on Friday 12th February 2021”.

“Screening will be held on zonal bases with the dates staggered according to grade levels and time allotted to states. The whole idea is to get the recruitment exercise concluded without exposing the candidate to unnecessary risks”.

He emphasized that only shortlisted candidates should go to the screening venue, while urging all candidates who will be coming for this screening to study the instructions and abide strictly to avoid instant disqualification and immediate eviction from the venue.

NCS therefore warns the general public to be mindful of fraudsters who will see the invitation for screening as another opportunity to distort and misinform desperate job seekers.

“Any source other than the Service known platforms vis-à-vis www.customs.gov.ng, www.facebook.com/customsng, TV, and Radio. Especially those funny sources that will eventually request payment of money should be ignored. NCS recruitment process requires NO monetary payment of any kind”.
